The Bluewater Community of Mindful Living is happy to announce our annual Michigan Mindfulness Retreat at Song of the Morning Yoga Retreat Center in Vanderbilt, Michigan.

Wednesday, September 14, through Sunday, September 18, 2011.
Song of the Morning Yoga Retreat Center
Vanderbilt, Michigan 49795

The fall retreat has become an anticipated event for many who enjoy the deep quiet of this beautiful and peaceful gathering in the woods north of Gaylord.

We sit. We walk. We enjoy the nourishment of food and friends.

Our lives are often busy and complex. Mindfulness practice is an opportunity to slow down and focus. Everyone can benefit from the healing practice of the Thich Nhat Hanh tradition.

It is not necessary to have any special religious orientation to participate. Everyone from all walks of life and traditions are cordially welcomed to join us for these days together. The practice is simple, easy to follow, and of benefit to all. Allowing your self to enjoy peace and quiet in beautiful, natural surroundings with the companionship of like-minded spiritual friends can be transformational, a life changing experience.

We welcome you for the weekend or for all five days.

The cost is $50 a night for a bed in the “Dormitory Domes” or $35 for camping with a 25% discount for stays on Wednesday and Thursday. Students with ID receive a 25% discount. Delicious vegetarian meals are included. Some private rooms are available for an additional cost.
